Tonight's the Night
Nov 09, 2013 by Michal Otten

Well, it's the day of the walk, and it is looking beautiful outside! Thanks to those of you who helped us reach our team goal of $1,000; I decided to up the ante to $1,250, so let's see if we can raise a little extra money before the walk tonight! The FBB nationwide goal is $500,000, and as of this posting, they have raised $259,892.89!


Just a reminder for those of you interested in donating:



  • A donation of $30 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.'


Please make a donation to support our participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Thanks for your support!

Who We Are
Oct 30, 2013 by Michal Otten

We are walking under the umbrella of Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB). FBB is a national charitable foundation created to focus, encourage and demonstrate humanist* generosity and compassion. Its primary purpose is to focus, encourage, and demonstrate the generosity and compassion of secular humanists in the interest of a better world. Of these, our primary purpose is to encourage each other to embody the highest principles of humanism, including mutual care and responsibility. In 2012, the combined efforts of all teams walking under the FBB umbrella raised $430,000! In 2013, their goal is to raise $500,000 toward cancer research - by early October, they had already raised over $220,000!!!



*Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.

How to Help
Oct 30, 2013 by Michal Otten

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services.


For more than 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been solely focused on people with blood cancers. Presently, we have more than $250 million committed to research across the United States and in ten other countries. Every dollar is provided by concerned donors. We invest in the best, outcome based science:


  • Anywhere, with no geographic or institutional boundaries
  • Without profit incentive
  • To meet unmet Medicare needs of people with blood cancers

And LLS funded advances are helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including people with solid tumors and auto-immune diseases. In the past decade, nearly 50% (19 out of 39) of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA were approved as treatments for blood cancer patients. Twelve are already approved for people beyond those for whom they were first developed. With your help, we are saving lives.


Here's how you can help:

  • A donation of $30 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.'
